How Child Support Is Calculated

Child support awards are determined by state guidelines and are based on what is known as the Income Shares Model. Among other factors, the gross income of both parties is one of the main factors that drives the child support calculation.

Child support is supposed to help pay for the care of minor children. Child care expenses, medical and dental insurance premiums, medical and educational expenses, and many other factors known as deviations are used to determine the amount of child support.

Child support may be modified at a later time depending on specific statutory factors and changes in circumstances. We understand the child support laws and guidelines used to determine support. We will review your situation to determine what options are available.
